Bruichladdich Octomore 6.3
Courtesy to my friend and his broken cork, I got to taste this wonderful dram.

Nose: With a monstrous stat of 258 ppm. A peat overhaul is expected. Yet the peat was not that overpowering, grassy and seashore like briny notes followed. There were also butter 🧈 , honey 🍯 roasted peanut, grilled pork chop with dried thymes. Strong sweet and fruity notes such as melon 🍈 , freshly cut red apple 🍎 , orange peel 🍊 .
Palate: Full bodied, almost had to chew on it. Oily and smooth. Salty, peaty, smoky, syrup like sweetness, mild oaky note.
Aftertaste: long and strong, woody and smoky. Enough to keep you warm for the whole winter.
